  2. I’m now 5 months sober from heroin. I didn’t go to rehab.. I got clean cold turkey. I never thought I’d become a drug addict. Even when I was using I didn’t like hearing drug addict. I only used 4 months but during that time I lost so much. I ruined my credit score, I got so far in debit and my boyfriend is facing charges cause the drugs. I dealt with DHS and almost lost my kid. During that time and getting clean I felt so alone. I still to this day I feel so alone because I don’t know anyone that did it too. I deal with addiction everyday. I’m having to go through surgeries but just be in pain so I won’t relapse. I live in fear of relapsing and being normal now.

  3. i dont think some people realize how serious addiction is. this drug is so horrible. ask anyone deep into heroin they will tell you its the worst. its sad to watch a person you love turn into someone you dont know.

  4. People that have never had opiate withdraws have no clue how much it hurts and how sick you get…and sick means sick…it feels like you habe the flu and your body hurts like hell…so if you have never felt it you have no right to say just stop doing it…or just quit….it isnt that easy

  5. When I was 19 I started drinking and doing drugs, I lived with my family in a nice house and had a mustang now I'm 27 live in a garage and lost my car and my family they come to see me occasionally, In the crave of looking for the next high I never really noticed I had lost it all till now, I am trying to recover they always tell us in school no to do drugs and I never listened can't believe I was this stupid.
